BLAIRSVILLE, Ga –  Union County will be holding three public hearings concerning the tentative 2021 millage rate at the courthouse on August 20.

“All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on the tentatively adopted millage rate.

– Thursday, Aug 20, 2020 at 10 am.
– Thursday, Aug 20, 2020 at 5:00 pm.
– Thursday, Aug 20, 2020 at 6:00 pm.

The millage rate will be set in a Called Meeting on Thursday, August 27, 2020, at 6:30 pm at the Union County Courthouse.

According to Georgia law, if a tax authority decides to not adopt the calculated rollback rate, officials must tentatively adopt their proposed rate.  Even if the millage rate that they plan to adopt is unchanged from last year, three public hearings must be held because it’s considered a tax increase by the state.

Once the three hearings take place with public input on the proposed tax rate and resulting tax revenue, commissioners can officially adopt the tentative rate.
